Mike E. PerezMy name is Mike E. Perez. I am a 30-year-old native of Harlingen, Texas. Currently, I live in Dallas. But I’m always keeping a close eye on what’s going on in my hometown.

Many people from my generation waved goodbye to the Rio Grande Valley long ago, settling in places like Austin, Dallas, Houston and San Antonio. For some, Harlingen is a distant memory that they’d rather not stir up. But for others, growing up in Harlingen will always be the foundation of who they are today. This blog is for those people—the people who care about the city’s growth and prosperity.

We are not here to discuss politics (although they may occasionally come up) or spread rumors and gossip. We’re here to inform the public about the great things that are happening in the Capitol City of the Rio Grande Valley. From arts and entertainment to retail and industry, we are all looking forward to a new, better Harlingen.
